FP! Your stats aren't all that far from mine, and I'm eating over 2000 on UDs and around 380-390 on DDs. I have lost 52 pounds over the last 7 months on JUDDD - it works! Keep reading all the threads related to JUDDD, and you'll be amazed how many of us it is working for. This is a great place for support and encouragement too. I've never "met" so many wonderful, giving, lovely people as on this board.

Welcome aboard, Patty! Yes, this is an effective way to lose weight (and enjoy many other benefits as well). It's also terrific since you are only dieting half of the time. I think that's especially appealing for those of us who have a lot of weight to lose. I really don't care that it is slower than some other methods because it's so enjoyable! The support group here is what really makes this plan amazing....honestly I attribute most of my success to the incredible support that you will find here. These people absolutely ROCK and quite a few of them are on maintenance now! Be sure to introduce yourself in the newcomer forum. We're glad you're here!

HCG to JUDDD

Hi! Has anyone here gone from HCG straight to JUDDD? I am finishing up a round of HCG and my last round was stable for about 6 months then decided to diet and exercise and gained back the 10 lbs I had kept off. Very frustrating! Any suggestions would be appreciated. BTW it has been two years since I started my journey and I am down 108 pounds. Hoping to knock down 10 more and then maintain forever!! Thank you!

Uh oh. Is this WOE going to turn me into a CONSTANTLY HUNGRY person?! I am doing this WOE so that I do not feel deprived/hungry all the time. This sounds like I am setting myself up to be feeling severely limited in about 8-12 weeks from now.

That is not my experience what so ever. I have the tiniest appetite ever. I am satisfied with very small amounts of food and almost never feel very hungry and I've been JUDDDing for 14 months.

I took this to mean that at 8-12 weeks, maybe we'll finally have the appetite for your UD calories? I am having a very hard time even coming close to my UD calories without serious planning, and feeling like I'm overeating right now. So maybe it will all just feel more "normal" in a few more weeks...?

It seems so easy for me lol. I had three cups of coffee this morning with whipped cream on top, and I think they were about 100 calories a piece. Then I had two pieces of toast with cashew butter (310), then bf left some powdered donuts on the counter and guess what I've managed to eat about 400 calories of those!!! It's not even lunchtime LOL! I guess if you eat low-fat, light, or specific kinds of foods, it might be difficult. That is definitely not a problem for me.

I would have only 400 and change left for dinner! I think that's why waiting till the evening works for me, because I get hungry later and I would be so bummed if I only had 500 calories for my UD dinner and bedtime snack.

I don't really need anything at night but a snack, if I eat a lot during the day.

This, right here, is what I worry about! I don't want to live forever going to bed hungry... or being hungry EVERY DAY until five pm...

or something.

This is what makes me think I might switch back to CNS or some other WOE for maintenance in the future. I may not have lost quickly (or at all) on those plans, but I didn't gain, either, and I surely never went hungry.

I think that the smaller you are, the less you need to eat. Carly gets to eat about 1500 calories. She chooses to eat all of her calories at night, but that is just her preference. I think you could space out that many calories easily, if you wanted three meals, or two and a dessert... Just about any diet is going to have some kind of restriction or else you wouldn't be able to lose weight on it, nor able to maintain weight loss on it. I know I got here by not restricting ever, and I'm willing to sacrafice a little now to lose. At least with JUDDD, you can eat pretty much all you (need) to eat EOD.

This is so true Cindy- basically if one wants to lose weight one has to restrict calories, carbs or fat. With most diets you have to restrict at least one of those things every day you are on the diet. JUDDD is awesome because you only have to really restrict every other day. My 1,500 doesn't feel restrictive to me. For my size that is plenty most of the time. There may be an occassion where some insanely fattening food is involved, but that is the great part of juddd it keeps the metabolism humming so the occassional blow out doesn't lead to massive gains. I could easily eat a 300 calorie breakfast, 300 calorie lunch and 900 calorie dinner and bedtime snack, but I prefer to eat in the evening so that is my preference. JUDDD sets you up for maintenance right from the start. I did Atkins for 3yrs and maintained 112 pounds, but I never was able to leave induction level carbs without gaining. With JUDDD I did my eod rotations and reached goal. I went to 4:3, but was still losing a bit so moved to 5:2 and have maintained effortlessly. I could have stayed with eod and had DDs around 800, but I actually enjoy my 2 DDs around 300 and feel that I keep my SIRTs activated and get to enjoy the benefits of "fasting". JUDDD isn't for everyone, but in my opinion it has been the most fun I have ever had while "dieting" and I truly never felt deprived- even on DDs. I never had to wait more that 24 hours for something I really wanted to eat.

Yes. I can get there.

sometimes it is the "residual down day" talking.

"I never had to wait more than 24 hours for something I really wanted to eat"

That, right there, is the "trick"... remembering this. I think as long as you are focusing on the current deprivation (or the pending one, if anticipating a DD), you are going to have a defeated mindset.

That is my problem!

Time to start looking at this glass half-full-ish.

Guess that's what newbs do, eh? Learning curve, and all that...

There is always a learning curve with something new, but if you can remember that what you want is never more than 24 hours away it's really very liberating. You can't always eat EVERYTHING in 1 UD, but another UD is always right around the corner. That took a lot of pressure out of having the "perfect" UD when I realized that UD wasn't once a month it was every other day. That is pretty darn awesome in my book. I think on JUDDD the glass is way more than half-full, but half-full is a good start. Another valuable lesson learned on JUDDD is that hunger is not an emergency. I am at no risk of perishing from starvation. I almost never feel hungry any more, but when I do feel hungry on a DD I wait 20 minutes to see if the feeling passes and in the last 14 mos I think there was less than 3 times where I actually still felt hungry after the 20 minutes passed. You'll be a pro at it in no time and while you are getting there the pounds will be disappearing!

If what you're looking for is not gaining, 5:2 or even 6:1 works in maintenance, in my experience. Trust me, unless you really want to do a fast eod for the rest of your life, you don't have to. I think I could do 5:2 one week, and 6:1 the next and stay the same. At least I can at this weight. If you're wanting to go below what your body/age/height should be, then you're going to have to severely restrict in maintenance as well.
